Working on my speech

Well guys, my first speech for Public Speeking is due next Tuesday. This is an informative speech, and I'm doing it on pits. We will do a persuasive speech next, so I need to be careful not to be persuasive in this speech. I just have to stick to the facts. Here's kind of what I have in mind:

Talk about the breed history - how the breed came about, how they came to America, what they were used for (bull baiting, hunting, farm animals), how the sport of fighting was started and how and when it was outlawed, what traits the breed still carries today from yesteryears

Breed Standard - Self explanitory for you guys - General Appearance, Charecteristics (personality, energy, temperment), Breed Disqualifications

Famouse APBT - Helen Keller's dog, Sgt. Stubby, Petey from Little Rascals

Please let me know if you guys know of any good websites, magazines, or books.

Also, would anyone mind letting me use a pic or two of their dogs in my PowerPoint presentation? I would really like to use a picture of OldFort's and Marty's dogs. (Let me know if you guys know how to get ahold of Marty other than on here, I'd like to ask for permission to use a couple of his pics.) I'd also like to have a pic of the merle color pattern, and a pic of a pit climbing a tree. So if any of you guys have a pic that I could use to show tree climbing abilities or the merle color pattern, please email it to me. If it's not your picture, please let me know who's it is so that I can ask for permission and site the source.

Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated. You guys are so very helpful.

My email addy is:
bettyboopster_24@hotmail.com

Thanks guys

Thank you soooo much. Would you mind emailing me the tree climbing pic, and any of your favorite pics that you wouldn't mind showing off. When you email, would you mind letting me know your real name so that I can credit you for the pictures. Also, if you know the date the pic was taken, that would be great. I'll definetly try to reach Marty.

You guys are just awsome.

Sure, I'll e-mail you some pictures ASAP. Is there anything else you would need? I've got well over 5000+ pictures on my home PC... I'm such a nerd

OK, guys. Now I'm starting to get worried. My speech is a little too long, and I just don't know what to cut out. And, I'm afraid I'm going to forget to credit my sources when I get up there and start talking. It's supposed to be 3-5 minutes, and I just practiced with Joe, and it lasted six. (I stumbled over my words a little bit, though.) But, when I add the visual aids, you know that's going to add some time. Plus, my intro and conclusion suck. I'm going to attach my outline. Please read it and help me!!! The last thing I want to do is get up there and look like a fool!!!!!!!!!!!!


Having some problems uploading, so I'm just going to copy:

American Pit Bull Terriers

INTRODUCTION: American Pit Bull Terriers are my favorite breed of dog. I have owned them for the past seven years, and have always been very interested in them. I have done very extensive research on the breed, and have spoken with some very knowledgeable breeders and owners. Today, I would like to tell you about the breed that I love. I’m going to talk about the breed history, the breed standard, and a few famous American Pit Bull Terriers. Hopefully, when I am finished with my presentation, you will be very informed about the breed.

a. AKC wanted nothing to do with pitbulls.
b. Wanted to represent the breed as performance dogs.
c. Added “American” dropped “Pit” from name.

e. Had to have won three fights. Later dropped requirement.


4. ADBA formed in 1909 by Guy McCord.

Hey, sounds great so far.

As far as to what you might want to cut out, perhaps some of the more vague details of their history? Perhaps provide the actual UKC or ADBA standard, and a dog that you feel best represents the physical attributes of the breed?

My visual aide is going to include some diagrams, so I'll talk a little more about the physical standard there. (That is, if the guy gets back in touch and gives me the ok to use his diagrams.) I was also going to use some pics of Marty's yard in my visual aide when talking about the standard. I think his dogs are just awsome. The outline is just the notes that I look at when speaking. We're only supposed to completely write out the introduction and conclusion. The body and main points is supposed to only consist of keywords so that we are discouraged from standing there and just reading to the audience. That's why it reads so vague and choppy. When I get the PowerPoint together, I'll post it too. Any ideas on how to make the intro and conclusion better? In the intro, I have to establish my credibility. And the conclusion should go back over the main parts of the speech.

I thought about maybe cutting out the fighting parts, but you can't really talk about their history without talking about fighting. What would you suggest cutting out in the history? Maybe what they still carry from history since those things are kind of covered in the charecteristics section? What do you think?

I appreciate all of your help.

I would provide a basic overview of their history, but not delve to deeply into any main aspect of it.
